War Horse at the Empire

War Horse at the Empire

All of Year 7 were thrilled by their visit to the National Theatre’s production of War Horse, as it visited the Sunderland Empire, on 1 May.‘What I really loved was the powerful communication between the horses and the humans,’ said one student. ‘It really took you into the heart of war,’ said another. Everyone was overwhelmed by the sheer artistry and complexity of the puppets, and by the stunning lighting and sound. It was a real joy that the whole year group was able to experience this masterpiece of live theatre together (and will go on to explore it further in English and in Art).
